Hershey is the chocolate capital of America…And you could not avoid that by the smell in our hotel. For some reason, despite the fact that you could not smell the Hershey Chocolate factory outside on the street, the hotel decided to pipe the smell of chocolate into the corridors of the buildings. Needless to say, it was not pleasant. Fortunately we were only staying a few days.
The whole really revolves around the Chocolate and the man who gave the company and the town it’s name. Even the street lamps are Hershey’s Kisses!
There was not much to do in the area other than work and the weather wasn’t very good so I didn’t venture out much. I did walk the mile or so to a local restaurant only to be faced with the all to common sight in The United States of disappearing side walks. They really don’t want people to walk anywhere out here!
